America’s Guided Democracy

On Thursday, during the Celtics-Mavericks playoff game, Joe Biden ran an ad attacking Donald Trump and claiming “the promise of American democracy will not break.” As viewers may have noted, “American democracy” marks a shift from “our democracy,” a euphemism that derives from the composite character David Garrow described in Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama.

In 1965, his mother Ann Dunham married Indonesian student Lolo Soetoro, and in 1967 the family moved to Indonesia in the aftermath of Sukarno, a primary figure of the “Bandung Generation,” as Paul Johnson described in Modern Times. Sukarno was “devoid of administrative skills. But he had the gift of words. Faced with a problem, he solved it with a phrase. Then he turned the phrase into an acronym, to be chanted by crowds of well-drilled illiterates.” Sukarno also introduced Demokrasi Terpimpin, “guided democracy,” and in 2016, the composite character had a version of his own.

The outgoing president picked his successor, Hillary Clinton, proclaiming, “I can say with confidence there has never been a man or a woman—not me, not Bill, nobody—more qualified than Hillary Clinton to serve as president of the United States of America.” Clinton’s escapades with a home-brew server, emails and destruction of devices violated federal statutes, but the FBI’s “Midyear Exam” operation kept her in the race. But as it turned out, the American people didn’t like the fundamental transformation of their country into a woke globalist colony, where terrorist mass murders were labeled “workplace violence.”

When Hillary lost, the composite character’s FBI deployed the “Crossfire Hurricane” operation against Trump. Democrats blamed his victory on Putin, launching the Russia hoax and multiple attempts at impeachment. Then came 2020, with the pandemic, mail ballots and so forth. That brought Delaware Democrat Joe Biden into the White House, and on his first day Biden cancelled Trump policies on energy independence, a secure border, and so forth.

Democrats now deploy lawfare against the former president, proclaiming him a threat to “American democracy.” For all but the willfully blind, it’s Biden’s version of guided democracy, a package deal. Sukarno also established Ekonomi Terpimpin, a “guided economy” that soon had the country in ruins. That brings to mind current conditions in America, with high inflation, millions of new illegals, and rising crime.

In these conditions Biden’s FBI targets Trump supporters, and according to CIA man John Gentry, Biden’s intelligence community is “available for reactivation in the event of another serious candidacy by Trump or the election of another Republican president.” Powerful government agencies are now guiding democracy along partisan lines. As Trump likes to say, we’ll have to see what happens.
